it was about colonization

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

It will be interesting seeing this marketed - 2 generations later.
Marketing has changed, and they were aggressive the 1st time

The avatar is old. And, no, that hat was not a groovy style back then, either.

CGI looks great, but will it hit the same 13 years later in the world of the MCU and DCEU? Could be great, could be Matrix Resurrections. We shall see

This is going to rule, but I will probably never stop laughing at that title.

I've now had multiple people tell me this episode of Chapo Trap House-- in which a couple of the guys rewatch Avatar, discover they love it, and break down why-- made them think about the movie in a different light, so I'll share it here for anyone interested:

But yeah. I think Avatar rocks, and I'm stoked for the second.

Excited to see avatar 2 on my home oled one day.

Still not sure I've ever seen more compelling use of CGI than the first movie. Certainly not in any film that is _primarily_ CGI.

Which is that the Navi for me were actually the more "advanced" species in comparison with their human counterparts. Their ability to plug in and communicate directly with their environment implies to me that they had reached a much higher plane of existence than humans ever could.

Unless they show the Navi somehow genetically engineered that, it seems that was just how all the species and animals evolved over time, as a way to stay in sync and harmony with each other and the planet.
